We came here with friends for a few drinks and food. Given it was Bonfire night, we timed it so it was fairly quiet. We managed to find a free booth and ordered food and drinks. The food arrived fairly quick for a Saturday and was well prepared and presented. We regularly come here and never have any issue with... More

Had lunch here on Sunday with the family but was surprised that there was no Roast Beef/Yorkshire Puds option. They did have a Sunday option but it was steak or English breakfast. I went for the steak and it was delicious. Everyone else had a variety of dishes and we were all pleased with the food. Service was reasonable and... More

Myself, partner and 10 year old son visit here whenever we are in Driffield. We visited today for lunch. Despite Driffield being quite busy, we found a vacant table easily. We were served at the bar straight away by a pleasant lady. She informed us that our meals would be between a 20 and 25 minute wait. This was ok.... More

We use this pub most weekends and have only once been disappointed .After being away for the weekend we decided to call in for breakfast. What a good choice . Breakfast for £3.25 ,was amazed at the price and the quality . Will definitely be going again.

Have been a regular here since it opened. It's a very typical Wetherspoons, ok-ish food and ok-ish service. However, I have seen a real downturn in service over the past year. The female staff seem to have an odd, smug game going on "getting one over" the customers. The male staff not much better. None seem to be able to... More

This wetherspoons has a very nice atmosphere. It's clean and spacious and the food is exactly what you expect. Unlike the Beverley premises it is more conducive to families and the menu and drinks are cheaper. Highly recommend this one.

We were on a camping trip just outside Driffield. A member of our party was celebrating his birthday so we thought we'd go to a Wetherspoon pub for a meal. Decided against Beverley as I didn't want to be surrounded by many drunk soldiers so we came here. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Being a Saturday night and... More
